I love these Fornasetti images and have a couple of them as stamps. They always stamp so beautifully and are such striking images that I try and use them whenever I have the chance. This month's letter for the UK Stampers ATC swap is R so I have chosen the word Reticent meaning to hold back thoughts or feelings. I mounted the image onto an ATC sized card with a brad so that it can be moved to reveal:
the background stamp and text are from a Paper Artsy set. I coloured in her eye and lips and added glossy accents.
I would like to add that when I started swapping ATCs many years ago, I started numbering them. This is number 700! I have 7 A5 ring binders full of all my swaps over the years and I look through them whenever I need inspiration or just whenever I have a moment or two to spare. They have given me an unquantifiable amount of pleasure and continue to do so.
